Hi all,
I'm planing on buying a new system the upcoming month, it is the first time will put one together myself. Mostly I want the pc for gaming and programming too. I don't want to make any mistakes, so ... I'm asking for help and advice, regarding compatibility of the components and suggestions. I want to stay on the same budget, so if you have any suggestions, let the be on the same price range.

This is what I planned:

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Winchester (tray)
Arctic Cooling Freezer 64
Asus A8N-SLI Premium
2x DDR-RAM 512MB PC400 CL2.5 Corsair (VS512MB400)
Samsung SpinPoint P120 200GB SATA II (SP2004C)
Gigabyte GeForce 6600GT 128MB DDR3 (GV-NX66T128VP)
ATX Midi Arctic Cooling Silentium T2 (350 Watt)
Toshiba SD-M1912, 16x/48x bulk (DVD-ROM)
Pioneer DVR-109 (A09) bulk (DVD-burner)
CRT 19" Samtron 98PDF 96kHz TCO03
Creative Inspire T7900 7.1
Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 1000 USB
(and I already have a Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Platinum Pro)

Thank very much in advance!

Personally, I would go with a bigger power supply, 350 is a bit on the weak side nowadays. I would also suggest the Plextor SATA DVD burner. Springing for more RAM will make your gaming that much better in my opinion. A gig is good but 2 is better :D

Get a retail processor, they come with a 3 year warranty. Don't get an OEM Tray, and I would spring for the Venice core of the 3000+. The Plextor SATA DVD burner is great and its completely compatable with the Asus A8N-SLI Premium (Just be sure and plug it into the Sata 300 ports not the SataRaid 150 ports).

Also for future reference: The second generation of SATA is not SATA II, that was reserved for the consortium designing the SATA interface. Call it either SATA 3Gb/s or SATA 300. People get mixed up, but SATA II is a misnomer.

Oh yeah and get a much bigger PSU.
